Books That Will Make You Laugh

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books That Will Make You Laugh. This should be fairly entertaining. Here we go.

I think I'll do this from my Goodreads "Read" shelf, so I'll do them most recent going backwards.

Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell - Every history book should include snarky commentary.

Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich - Snappy dialog and sarcasm always make me giggle.

Thug Notes by Sparky Sweets - This had me rolling.

Bite Me by Christopher Moore - More sarcasm from Abby Von Normal, so right up my street.

Redshirts by John Scalzi - The commentary on Star Trek knockoff television is hysterical.

Texts From Jane Eyre by Mallory Ortberg - I really got a kick out of characters from classic literature using text speak.

The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore - Two by the same author, but he does comedy so well. With this one, it helps if you are vaguely familiar with Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice.

The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick - All these characters are unintentionally hilarious.

The Novel Cure by Ella Berthoud - It's not every day you can get a chuckle out of non-fiction.

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell - Well, then, here's another non-fiction gut buster.

So if you're looking for a good time, go check out one of these books. What would you add to the list?
